    I am a part of the unwanted club.

    .I was a surprise times two. From the time the test turned that unlucky color and that meant a trip to the scrape and slide and now...Now I'm just an unlucky mistake alone and alone I come to the surprise of none but one. Into the world I come...another unwanted one.

    Mother Teresa

    Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. Mother Teresa
